News and Announcements


Congratulations to our 4 swimmers who have been chosen to take part in the Commonwealth Games Queen’s Baton Relay as it travels through Birmingham. Each Birmingham school was asked to nominate one pupil to carry the Baton and four of them were Orion swimmers! They were each nominated for their resilience, their contribution to school and community life and their sporting achievements.

First up on the 25th of July is Ellie Sibbald-Perkins who will carry the Baton at 16:19 from 215 High Street, Smethwick to 2 Roslyn Close.

On 27th July, Amelie Zarifeh will carry the Baton at 9:52 from 133 Selly Oak Road to 304 Selly Oak Road. At 10:06 Emily Rotherham will then carry it from 80 Ashmore Road, Cotteridge to 35 Park Avenue, Kings Norton. Finally, Sophia Okoosi-Dunn will carry the Baton at 11.18 from 124 Warwards Lane, Selly Park to 97a Warwards Lane.

We are immensely proud of these swimmers who fully deserve their selection. Why not come along and cheer them on the day?"


Congratulations to Karnell and Ellie who will be competing for Orion at the upcoming British Swimming Summer Championships. Karnell will compete in the 50m and 100m Breaststroke and Ellie in the 50m and 200m Breaststroke. The top 24 swimmers in Great Britain achieving times in the Spring qualifying window are selected to compete at these championships so it is a fantastic achievement. The next 20 qualifiers compete at their home nation championships in England, Wales or Scotland.

Congratulations also to Orion swimmers Imogen, Will, Cameron and Jacob who will be competing for the City of Birmingham Swimming Club at the Championships.

Congratulations also to Olivia who qualified for the England Summer Championships in the 100 Free. Olivia is sadly unable to compete as she will be on holiday! Orion swimmer Rachel will be competing at these Championships for the City of Birmingham.

Well done all!
